What we're about

The Los Angeles International Fern Society was formed to provide a source of information on ferns, to arrange for people to study ferns and to encourage the use and enjoyment of ferns. In a more general way, the Society aims to encourage all horticultural activities by example, education, exhibits, and donations.

General membership meetings are held on the third Friday of the month at 7:30 in the Bamboo Room (downstairs Lecture Hall) at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, 301 North Baldwin Avenue, Arcadia, CA 91007, (626) 821-3222, one block south of the 210 Freeway.

NOTE – Due to the Corona Virus, all meetings and programs at the Arboretum have been canceled until further notice. We are holding our meetings online.
